Heavy traffic was reported today (18) at ward place in the Town Hall area due to a protest launched by ETI Finance Limited (ETI) depositors.
The depositors have been demanding authorities to take action against the Ederesinghe family since the bankruptcy of ETI finance.
Recently the depositors gathered at the Town Hall grounds to protest against the CMC inviting former ETI director Deepa Edirisinghe for women’s day special event.
Depositors have claimed that both the Central Bank and government have turned a blind eye for the incident.
Though depositors were paid the 25% of deposits as per the agreement, they are claiming to pay them in full.
